Chance The Rapper‘s meteoric rise following the release of his Acid Rap album in April of 2013 was nothing less than awe inspiring, and since then he’s toured the world non-stop, with everyone from Eminem to Macklemore, and after introducing the world to the Acid Rap/Social Experiment experience, it appears he’s finally ready to deliver his extremely highly anticipated return to music. In an exclusive interview with Billboard, Chance revealed his new album with The Social Experiment, Surf, which will feature Migos, J.

I’m definitely tired of playing Acid Rap.

But when there are cool and calm three-song medleys that play out like a play, that’s the shit I’m into. I’m finally learning how to work like a choir director.
There isn’t yet a release date for Surf, but Chance admitted he’d like it to be out by year’s end.
